Does anyone know if visors and glove are an advisory or a legal requirement for mobiles ?
I've got hand gel, individual masks, disposable capes and barbicide between each client.

I think they’re all just guidelines rather than strictly legal requirements as that would require a bill and debate in Parliament.

However, I recommend giving your insurer a call and check what their position is before you start seeing clients. They might introduce a special COVID clause to their policies.

Also, have you thought about using a Perspex face shield?

I'm insured with Towergate, today I received am email with requirements and restrictions a visor is specifically mentioned so you definitely need to check with your insurer (NB. I'm nails so not opening yet but hair, beauty and nails come under the same policy)
